Hare’s Tail Cotton Grass or Cotton sedge is a common sight on wet, boggy moorland, on acid peat bogs and damp, unimproved meadows. The snow white hairy seed heads stand out against the spring green brown of moors. This clump-forming, coarse sedge is tough and tolerant but needs damp or wet ground. Seed isn’t dormant and germinates best at higher temperatures and with light. Don’t cover the seed when sowing. Mow/Scythe off occasionally, early in the year.
